Save the children: Preparing for and Responding to COVID-19 in Cambodia
Description: While the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases is still relatively low in Cambodia, the impact of Covid-19 on children and families is already quite pronounced. It’s clear that COVID-19 could undo years of progress made in children’s health, education and family liveilhoods across the country.
Economic recession and the social disruption accompanying government restrictions are having devastating socio-economic impacts – impacting parental employment and entrepreneurialism and taking millions of children out of school, missing out on valuable holistic development and well-being support.
As the pandemic continues to spread, it is already remarkably evident that the most marginalised and vulnerable children will pay the highest price. Our opportunity to act is now in order to mitigate the potential devastation of COVID-19.
